Sex and Character - with interlinear translation, Otto Weininger, translation: Robert Willis. Through the distinction between the man type and the woman type, the young latter nineteenth-century Viennese thinker Otto Weininger attempts to bring the contrast of transcendent individuality and worldly individualism into sharper relief. Even further, he posits the existence of a deeper psychical realm that surpasses sexuality and gender, and that ultimately would liberate mankind of original sin, returning it to its naive state of innocence. In this undertaking, Weininger uses many philosophical, religious, empirical, aesthetic, literary, and historical references of the past to supplement his own insights. This translation follows the original German verbatim. I have chosen this method in order to retain its German stylistic character as much as possible.
